Strawberry Balsamic Flatbread for #SundaySupper

This post is sponsored by Florida Strawberry in conjunction with a social media campaign through Sunday Supper LLC. All opinions are my own.

Three things I really enjoy are: pizza in any form, Florida strawberries (the tastiest in the world!), and eating semi-healthy. By combining my love for these things, I was able to come up with a delicious new recipe to start off the new year!

My strawberry balsamic flatbread starts with a flatbread crust baked until perfectly crunchy, and is topped with juicy Florida strawberries, tangy blue cheese, a handful of arugula and a sprinkle of balsamic and toasted pecans. It’s easy to prepare and is a great appetizer! Plus, the healthy ingredients are sure to keep you on top of your healthy resolutions game.

There are soooo many benefits to eating Florida strawberries. Did you know that 8 little red berries contain more Vitamin C than an orange?! They also help fight cancer and other illnesses. Those two benefits alone make me want to add strawberries to everything.

Florida strawberries don’t even need to be cut up to enjoy them. Just wash and bite! I like to keep a baggie full of strawberries at my desk when I’m working to enjoy. They don’t need to be refrigerated when you’re on the go! Using Florida strawberries in a recipe? They taste best at room temperature, so let them sit out for an hour or so before using them. Keep their little green caps on until they’re ready to use. This helps them retain their flavor and nutrients.

Now that you’ve learned all about Florida strawberries, how about making my flatbread for your next get-together? Scroll down for the recipe!
